Summer session participation continues to increase 
Undergraduate enrollment for the first three weeks of summer session at UW-Eau Claire already has surpassed last year's total for the whole summer, continuing a trend toward greater participation in summer classes.
     "We won't have final figures until late August," said Kay Magadance, senior policy and planning analyst at UW-Eau Claire, "but we already have 2,282 undergraduates enrolled, and last year the total was 2,196 for the whole summer. There was a period of lower interest starting around 1995, but for the past several years we've again seen a steady increase."
     Summer session courses are most popular with the more than 1,600 junior and seniors attending them, but more than 450 freshmen and sophomores also are taking advantage of them this summer, along with almost 300 graduate students and 210 special (non-degree seeking) students. Enrollment will continue to increase throughout the summer according to Jan Morse, administrative officer and director of summer session.
     Morse believes there are several reasons why summer session classes are increasingly popular. "We always try to offer something for everyone; we're very concerned with meeting the educational needs of students. In addition, we are continuing to add to our online course offerings, which allow more access to a wider audience. Summer session is an exciting educational experience because students are able to immerse themselves in just one subject for several hours each day, rather than the four or five courses typically taken during the fall and spring semesters. This can provide a very worthwhile experience for our summer students," Morse said.
     Students were able to choose from more than 200 classroom-based and 20 online courses during this year's three- and eight-week summer sessions. The three-week session ended June 7, and the eight-week session, which began June 10, will end Aug 2. A separate four-week session will begin July 8. Students still may register for courses by calling the Registration office at 836-2425.
